Stuart Assault & Battery Lawyer

Effectively Defending You from Serious Offenses

Assault and battery mean two different things, although the terms are often used interchangeably. Assault essentially occurs when one person threatens another person with physical harm either verbally or physically. Regardless of whether the first person follows through on their threat, their threatening actions constitute assault. Battery is similar to assault but differs in the fact that battery includes actual physical harm being inflicted.

The penalties for these types of violent crimes are severe and often result in felony convictions, exorbitant fines, and even extensive prison time. If you’ve been accused of or charged with assault and battery, you need strong legal representation right away. Backed by years of in-depth legal experience and even more years spent working on the police force, our defense attorney in Stuart can provide you with relentless and proficient legal services.

About Aggravated Battery & Assault

The penalties for battery and assault can be increased depending on the specific circumstances of the offense. These penalties are increased when the offenses are moved up to either aggravated battery or aggravated assault. Aggravated battery occurs when the offense results in the permanent disfigurement of the victim or when the act involves the use of a deadly weapon. Aggravated assault is anytime an assault occurs in conjunction with a felony or when the assault involves the use of a deadly weapon. The penalties for aggravated crimes are much steeper than normal offenses.

In general, this is the outline for offenses and their corresponding penalties in Florida:

  • Battery – First-degree misdemeanor; In jail for up to one year and $1,000 in fines
  • Assault – Second-degree misdemeanor; In jail for up to 60 days and $500 in fines
